World’s Largest Virtual Hallelujah Chorus

The Mormon Tabernacle Choir is back with an epic performance yet.–  the 360-member choir released a video featuring a powerful rendition of George Frideric Handel’s “Hallelujah” chorus..

What made this performance special is that the choir was joined by more than 2000 additional voices — a virtual chorus of students, celebrities, politicians and vocalists from around the world.

Participants were asked to send organizers videos of themselves singing one of the four parts of the chorus (soprano, alto, tenor or bass). The videos came from places as far away as Brazil, Russia and Kiribati. The diverse chorus includes the “country group Firefly, actor Donny Osmond, Utah Gov. Gary Herbert and choirs of several Christian denominations from around the world.

  1. What an undertaking! Although the virtual presences seemed to be contributing live on their screens, they’d have to be prerecorded, wouldn’t they?

    Very effective!
